Issue Began ... Monday 4/11/2011 around 3:00 PM ET (USA)
Description .... Whenever using any of three web-browsers (Firefox, Opera, MS-IE) on my laptop, AVAST alerts me of a threat regardless of what I click onto. In each case, AVAST identifies the running process as the specific browser in use.
A quick scan with AVAST was done, which singled out some html and htm files. I deleted those because I had backups. However, the AVAST alerts continue with web-browsing.
There have been no AVAST alerts when using non web-browsing apps.
A search of this issue on the internet indicates that I may have picked up something which triggers false alerts to AVAST. If this is so, and if AVAST can't find it, what is a good solution?
